Students looking to progress to higher education are also able to seek individual UCAS guidance.

Pembrokeshire College is committed to developing its bilingual provision and ethos. We promote bilingualism and encourage all our students to develop and use their Welsh language skills.
Students are welcome to access tutorials in Welsh, to complete assessments or assignments through the medium of Welsh and there are many units that you can study in Welsh or bilingually too.
Studying your vocational course bilingually will help you develop valuable skills for the workplace and will give you a wider range options when you leave College.
Opportunities to develop skills
Here in the College, there’s a wide range of courses which can help you do everything from developing your awareness of the language, give you the confidence to meet and greet in Welsh, develop your ability to offer a customer service through the medium of Welsh and develop your skills both spoken and written.
Whatever your level of skill and confidence, we can help develop those skills in readiness for moving on to the workplace or moving on to another course.
The College is excited to announce the creation of ‘Aelwyd Coleg Sir Benfro’ which will give students the opportunity to compete and volunteer in the Eisteddfod. Students are also welcome to join the ‘Bore Clonc’ which is held every third Tuesday of the month.
